Illustrations are tools-use them.Illustrations are critical to understanding Earth science. They are a centerpiece of your textbook and, most likely, your instructorï¿½ï¿½ï¿½s lecture. In the Student Lecture Notebook youï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ll find all the art from the text, reproduced with space for you to take notes. In fact, you may find that these illustrations are exactly the ones you will se in class. Using the Student Lecture Notebook means: more focused and more rapid note taking, less writing in your textbook, and less to carry to class. The Student Lecture Notebook is available through your bookstore.
